A. Sir Paul McCartney is probably the most famous pop musician of the 20th century. Together with John Lennon he formed the Beatles, and since their break-up has had a long solo career. Altogether he has written over 500 songs including Yesterday, the most played pop song of all time. He has recently also written a classical piece called Standing Stone which was premiered in 1997. His wife Linda died of cancer in 1998. He has four children.
B. 'In 1957 when I was 15 and he was 16, and we were both still at school. We had a lot in common, we were both mad about music and we both lost our mothers when we were teenagers. My mother had died of cancer the year before and John’s mum was run over by a car a year after we’d met. So there was always that special bond between us.'
C. ’It was when I was still at school and John was at art college. We used to write at my house in the afternoon when my dad was working. We had about three hours before my dad got home. John had a secondhand guitar and I played a bit on the piano. We had an old school notebook and I used to write at the top of the page A Lennon and McCartney original. We always said to each other that we'd be the greatest songwriting team in the world, which is funny because that's exactly what we became. We formed the Beatles in I960.'
D. 'Usually the Beatles' songs which were my idea weren’t personal but there were some exceptions, for instance, I wrote Let it be about my mother, whose name was Mary. One night, when the Beatles were breaking up and I was feeling very depressed, I had a dream where I saw my mum. It was great to see her again and in the dream she said, 'Don’t worry. Everything'll be all right.' It was such a nice dream I woke up and I felt much better and I started to write Let it be. Later I formed Wings and I wrote a lot of songs to my wife Linda.'
E. 'I persuaded her to do it. I needed her there, we were a partnership and I wanted her with me on the stage. She wasn't very happy about being in the group at all in the beginning, I suppose because she felt she wasn't a musician. But for me it was really important. I know a lot of people didn't like it but that's their problem.’
F. 'It was one of the best days of my life. When I arrived at Buckingham Palace I realized that I’d forgotten my invitation but luckily it didn't matter. They recognized me. When the Queen touched me on the shoulder with the sword, my daughter Stella who was in the audience started crying. I felt incredibly proud that someone who started life in a poor street in Liverpool had come so far.'
G. 'Not at all. On the contrary, I’m incredibly proud of them all, because they’re all really creative and talented. Stella, who’s now a fashion designer, will probably end up being more famous than me. Who knows?'

Eliza had laid her child to sleep in the village hotel by the side of the river, before the men came into the same place. Eliza was standing by the window, when she saw Sam. Haley and Andy were two yards behind.
Eliza’s room had a side door to the river. She caught her child, and rushed outside. The trader saw her just as she was running towards the bank. He threw himself from the horse, called loudly to Sam and Andy and rushed after her. A few moments later she was at the water’s edge. With one wild cry she jumped over the current of water on a piece of ice. The huge green mass of ice on which she landed creaked, but she stayed there only a moment. She jumped to another cake of ice. Then to another! And another again! Her shoes were gone. Her stockings were cut away, and blood from her feet marked every step. But she saw nothing, felt nothing, till, as in a dream, she saw the Ohio side, and a man helping her up the bank.
You’re a brave girl!' said the man.
Eliza recognized the voice and face of the man who had a farm not far from her old home.
'Oh, Mr. Symmes! Save me. Please, hide me!' said Eliza.
Why, what’s this?' said the man. Why, it’s Shelby’s girl!’
'My child! This boy! He’d sold him! There is his Master,' she said, pointing to the Kentucky bank.
'I’d be glad to do something for you,' he said, 'but then there’s nowhere I could take you. The best I can do is to tell you to go there,' he said, pointing to a large white house which stood by itself, off the main street of the village. 'Go there. They’re kind folks. They’ll help you. They’re up to all that sort of thing.’
'Thank you, sir,' said Eliza.
She walked firmly away with her son in her arms. The man stood and looked after her.
'Shelby,' he thought, 'perhaps you’ll say this isn’t the best thing in the world to expect from a neighbour. But what else can I do? If you meet one of my girls in the same trouble, you can pay me back. I don’t like to be a hunter for other folks.’
Haley couldn’t believe what he had seen. When Eliza disappeared up the bank, he turned to Sam and Andy.
The girl’s got seven devils in her, I believe!’ said Haley. 'She jumped like a wildcat!'
'Well, now,' said Sam, scratching his head. 'I hope Master will excuse us. Don’t think I can jump like that, no way!' And he laughed.
You laugh!' said the trader.
'I can’t help it now, Master,' said Sam. 'She jumps; ice cracks! How she goes!' And Sam and Andy laughed till the tears rolled down their cheeks.
Til make you cry!' said the trader, laying about their heads with his whip. Both ran shouting up the bank, and were on their horses before he was up.
Eliza’s child was sleeping when she saw her followers.

Yellowstone National Park was established by the U.S. Congress in 1872. It is known for its wildlife and geothermal features, especially Old Faithful Geyser. It is not the biggest or the most regular geyser in the park, but it is the biggest regular geyser. Over the years, it has become one of the most studied geysers. Yellowstone spans an area of about 9,000 km2 and has beautiful lakes, deep canyons, and mountain ranges.
Hundreds of species of mammals, birds, fish, and reptiles live there. The park has numerous recreational opportunities, including hiking, camping, boating, fishing, and sightseeing. Paved roads provide close access to the major geothermal areas as well as some of the lakes and waterfalls. During the winter, visitors often access the park by way of guided tours that use either snow coaches or snowmobiles.
